Onboard Manuals Now in PDF Format
Back on January 7, 2015 I published a blogpost about updating our onboard equipment manuals--it was an update in that the manuals matched our current onboard equipment. At that time I thought about simply putting them into electronic format but we had plenty of space for storing hardcopy manuals at the time. Here we are 16 months later and we are completely revising our system for the primary reason that we need to use the shelf space for other things that we know we will need.
Carrying the large binders full of equipment manuals to our car reminded me of
lugging large engineering text books around my
college campus a long time ago.
|This stack of guide books stored in the corner of our chart table reduced |
the amount of space for spreading out our large chart books.
|We are now using the shelf space below the chart table for our guide |
books--this was previously used for binders
full of equipment manuals.
|With all the guide books removed, our chart table has ample space for |
our large chart books but it will most likely;y be used just for my laptop
and our log book. (I wonder how long the chart table will stay this clean?)
